The people that reviewed Sonic Adventure are either hypocrites or liars. How can the same game that people were saying was great back when it first came out say that it's horrible now. I don't accept that. A good game is a good game is a good game. If I was a gold member I would buy the game.


You typed this on purpose? I'd give a rebuttal, but everyone else took care of it for me. After your trolling efforts in the Fable Heroes thread, I can see that you have trouble accepting other people's viewpoints. That's not good.

His lack of sufficient words to make a full sentence and punctuation certainly work to obscure the intended meaning!

I feel the same way. A good game is a good game. However, I am finding that some games really just stand the test of time. I used to like the original Sonic games when I was a kid, but I can't stand them now. However, Sonic Adventure was never a good game. IMHO it was the start of Sonic's fall from grace. He just couldn't make the transition to polygonal 3D.


That view I can definitely respect if not necessarily agree with. After going through the game the same problems that were around back then didn't go anywhere. It's still a good game though. No way it should have gotten a 48 on Metacritic. I have a couple of reasons why that may have happened. but I'm basically done with this issue so I won't get into it. Looks like I'll be playing a lot more game demos and looking a lot less at so-called expert critics.

I've expounded on that post. If you want to post holding petty grudges and making personal attacks on my character you're wasting your time.

Sonic hasn't aged well. The formula was novel at the time when the Genesis was a processing beast compared to its peers, but once that was no longer the case you were just left with a poor platformer with increasingly annoying characters.

I just finished Sonic Generations and found the 3D parts absolutely brutal (no fun at all), and found the 2D parts OK.

Sonic 2 is one of my favorite games of all time, but i just don't think there has been a good sonic game after the Genesis era.

I dunno, I think Sonic Adventure was good at the time. It had many obvious problems like falling off of ledges too easily, crummy cameras, the extremely stilted and childish dialogue, Big the Cat, Knuckles' levels, etc. but it still had a lot of gameplay and heart. The XBLA version should have been updated with widescreen support, but otherwise it's a good port. However, I don't see people who don't have nostalgia for the original enjoying it very much due to the aforementioned problems.

As I understand it these sales usually overlap for a bit Tuesday morning. I'm looking to get The Walking Dead Episode 2 if it is available tomorrow, but if it isn't I think I'm just going to use the points on Tornado Outbreak. What time do the sales end?

I wouldn't expect The Walking Dead Episode 2 tomorrow. They still haven't given a specific date on it for any platform.

The achievement list for Jet Set Radio dropped. Any have an idea on the release date? I never had the chance to play this when I was younger and I want to see where all the hype and notority comes from.

That's what I figured, but someone posted in the thread earlier that it was the date. I'm not getting my hopes up too much though. That date was probably picked because Telltale said "the end of June" and it's the last Tuesday of June. We'll see tomorrow though. Thanks for the info, both of you.

Officially, just "Summer" at the moment. Sega hasn't announced any specific date.

I'm still hopin' for some avatar awards, considering the other Dreamcast games had them & Sega's pretty much put them in some of their games recently, mainly the downloadable ones.

Sonic Generations is the closest SEGA's come to matching any of the Genesis-era efforts.

I thought that one was about as good as any 3D Sonic game can be.

Sonic and 3D have just never gotten along very well.

It's DLC, not an XBLA game, so the rules don't apply to it. The person that said it was coming out tomorrow didn't provide any source/proof to back it up, so he's most likely talking out of his butt.

JSR may have been my favorite game ever at one point, it's such a stylish mixture of quirky music and inspired gameplay. I think I finished the DC version nine times, looking forward to finishing the XBLA version yet again.

The first two games I got for my Dreamcast were Sonic Adventure and Crazy Taxi. Crazy Taxi became one of my favorite games of all-time and Sonic Adventure is one of my least favorite of all-time. The action stages were cool at the time, but the unbelievably dull adventure stages destroyed all of the enjoyment I could have had if they let me just play the action stages. Those were my thoughts over a decade ago and they're still the same today.

There were rumors of a June 26th release, but it looks like that isn't the case anymore ...

I played Gotham City Impostors on PS3 for a while and the community died fairly quickly and became a glitchfest.

I cannot recommend the game either. Even if you like the gameplay, there are several issues with the game that make it frustrating. When I played the week of release, when the most players were likely to be around, matchmaking took a really long time. Finding and getting into a match took at least as long as the match itself. That's no fun. The game also didn't seem to add players midmatch. So when you're playing 3 on 3 and one guy quits because he doesn't like the map selection, and then another guy leaves because he doesn't want to play outmatched, you're left with three guys running around the map hunting one guy on the other team.
